Media outlets and critics heaped lavish praise on the new Apple series Pachinko.
Especially on Rotten Tomatoes, the show recorded a whopping tomatometer of 100%.
Based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Pachinko recounts the hopes and dreams of four generations of a Korean immigrant family. Starting with the forbidden love, the show chronicles the war and peace, love and parting, victory and judgment while traveling back and forth between Korea, Japan, and the States.
Ahead of its premiere on the 25th, media and critics around the world are pouring out applauds for the actors’ performances and the directing that beautifully captures the grandiose narrative. This is how the show is reviewed on Rotten Tomatoes.
Moreover, Rolling Stone reviewed, “It deals with the subject in an artistic and elegant way. The denseness of the original novel and the unique advantages of the video were perfectly combined.” The Hollywood Reporter said, “It is a story that transcends the times that strongly shakes the heart.” Indiewire also praised the work, saying, “It develops delicately and softly, but the intensity coexists.”
Vulture especially praised the actors’ outstanding performance. “Youn is excellent as the elder iteration, and Kim is absolutely astounding as Sunja in her youth. There is a clarity to her performance that becomes the foundation on which the whole series is built,” they wrote.
Meanwhile, Pachinko is an 8-part global project produced in Korean, Japanese, and English. The first three episodes will be released on March 25th, with additional episodes released every Friday until April 29th.
